The Bakersfield Police Department has arrested three men suspected of being involved in a central Bakersfield shooting.

Earlier this month, officers responded to a call of a shooting at a Family Dollar on Union Avenue.

They found 41-year-old Carlos Munoz suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

Investigators were able to identify three suspects, 33-year-old Jose Zambrano, 28-year-old Juan Rubio and 35-year-old Jose Urenda.

Wednesday, officers were able to arrest Zambrano and Rubio without any incident.

Thursday, officers went to Urenda's home in the 1100 block of Snyder Lane. When they arrived, Urenda ran from police, but officers were able to locate and arrest him with the help of a police K-9 unit.

The three have been arrested on suspicion of murder, conspiracy and solicitation to commit murder.
